Protest to be Held in Front of Chinese Consulate

Press Release: NZ Falun Dafa Association

Chinese Police Rape Two Female Falun Gong Practitioners

Activities in Protest to be Held in Front of Chinese Consulate


What: Speeches from NZ Falun Gong (aka Falun Dafa) practitioners condemning the rapes and continued brutal persecution, plus sit in protest.

When: 3pm, Tuesday 13th December, 2005


The Falun Dafa Association has recently learned of the brutal rape of yet another two Falun Gong women, aged 42 and 51, by Chinese police in China. Shocking photos of the victims obtained by the Falun Dafa Information Centre (FDI) show the violent nature of the rapes.

Mrs Liu Jizhi, a 51-year-old wife and mother, and 42-year-old Ms. Han Yuzhi were both beaten and raped by a Chinese policeman one after another on November 25th, while another police officer looked on.

After being released on bail, Mrs Liu fled from home to live in exile in order to avoid further persecution from Chinese authorities. However, Chinese Falun Dafa website minghui.net was able to find Mrs Liu for an interview regarding the rapes, which can be found at http://www.minghui.cc/mh/articles/2005/12/8/116146.html

Accounts of rape in the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong are becoming increasingly common. “For the CCP, torture is not a ‘problem’ or ‘scourge’ to be stamped out, but rather, one of the primary ways in which it maintains control over people,” stated FDI spokesperson Levi Browde”.

Over 44,000 cases of torture and severe abuse of Falun Gong practitioners in China have been documented. Many cases, including both men and women, involve sexual abuse or rape.
